Dear Friends

Today when I came out of my house to go to school at 7 am ,I was a little late.I requested my hubby to drive faster to reach on time.It was quite comfortable to drive at 100 speed on Noida expressway.But when reached to kalindi kunj I got irritated with the loud noise of horns.whats the matter? I peeped outside the car,there was a thela with four small kids aged between 5 years to 2 years, and the boy who was pulling it was hardly 7 years old . In the morning when the whole world is rushing to the schools .colleges and parents make all efforts to get their kids ready for the school,what were these children doing on the road with a thela full of garbage ?where were their parents?who is responsible for their such conditions? what about free and compulsory education policy of government?
My husband shouted at them loudly to get a side so that he can drive faster and move forward.I was under great stress for getting late .I just said "kis ne in ko paida karke road par phenk diya?"but was my statement justified and enough as a responsible citizen of India?what did I do for them?nothing .I reached school and continue with my works without even thinking for those kids for a moment.

As a teacher I always think where our youth are going? Today's priorities are "babar ba aish kosh ki alam dobara neest"khao piyo aur mauj karo. but is this the purpose of life? Is it wise to waste our energy and resources in useless activities? no direction ,no purpose ,no strive .It seems that they have given up.whenever I go to Okhla from Noida ,I found young children of this area loitering around ,using abusive language.eating gutkas and staring at passers by.

why ?why don't they realize their potentials?why don't they engage themselves in some constructive works?why don't they remember Iqbal's Shaheen?

"tu shaheen hai parvaz hai kam tera
tere samne aasma aur bhi hain'

where are those shaheen and where are those aasman?

can you suggest me some possible constructive remedies for these ignorant youth?

let us join our hands to do something to change the situation .

At least we can counsel them .
So, next time whenever you see such people ,don't hesitate to counsel them with love.

ALlah is always with you.

lots of Love and Care
